I planted a Concord grape early this Spring (2021) and it is doing very well. Lots of leaves and new growth. The leaves have a bit of damage; something is eating them but I'm not sure what. I note this because the Niagara grape next to it has no damage. Perhaps Concord is less resistant to whatever is snacking on it in Central Texas than Niagara is. But I don't think there is any real damage to the plant.
